About Project

Jigs and fixtures don’t replace people but instead, make their work easier and more efficient. These devices aid repeatability, quality, and time efficiency. Jigs and fixtures don’t replace people but instead, make their work easier and more efficient. These devices aid repeatability, quality, and time efficiency.

The biggest advantage of 3D printed jigs and fixtures is that they cost less. Besides, using 3D printed jigs and fixtures can save from 40% to 90% lead time from designing a tool to introducing it to the production floor. Many companies are able to improve their manufacturing process in just one day instead of weeks.

Solution

  • Step 1: Check the STL files offered by our client, recommend an appropriate material according to their needs. FacFox also suggests a honeycomb inner structure to decrease material usage and lessen the weight while the intensity and durability are both maintained.
  • Step 2: FDM 3D printing the fixtures with PLA.
